Whey is a byproduct when making cheese, yogurt, kevir or quark it’s rich in protein and lactic acid. Once you learned how to make Kefir (described in May issue or quark in June issue) you will end up with whey. You can use it to soak your grains or in fermenting processes like kimchi (just add a ¼ cup of whey to the water). Whey has the highest tryptophan content of all food sources, which is great to help balanceing stress and improves memory scanning significantly (Wise Tradition Magazine spring 2013 ). Whey is a natural preservative that inhibits putrifying bacteria. Dr Mercola recommends to drink 20-25gr of whey (powder) which is about ½ cup of real whey after a workout to build muscles it’s also beneficial for your heart and blood pressure. Whey protein is quickly absorbed and is also a great snack when kids come home hungry. Add a ¼ apple or some berries and mix it up in your magic bullet.
